WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A source in the Bosnian delegation on Friday described the atmosphere at the peace talks under way in Dayton, Ohio, as "good."
The Bosnian source said Friday the delegations meeting at Wright-Patterson AFB outside Dayton held informal meetings to discuss constitutional issues. He said there were a number of meetings among the delegations and between each delegation and members of the Contact Group: the United States, France, Britain, Germany and Russia.
The outline of a constitution was agreed upon in New York in September. The constitution creates a unitary Bosnia divided into two entities: one for the Bosnian-Croat federation and another for the Bosnian Serbs. The source said the delegations are now trying to hone that draft into a workable document.
The informal meetings Friday are described as being between members of the delegations, the so-called working groups.
The talks, which began Wednesday, are aimed at reaching a comprehensive peace agreement among the Bosnian, Serb and Croat factions.
